The ImagickPixel::getColorValueQuantum() function is an inbuilt function in PHP which is used to get the normalized value of the provided color channel for a given ImagickPixel’s color. The normalized value lies in the quantum range where 65535 is maximum and 0 is lowest on contrary to getColorValue() function where 1 was highest and 0 was lowest.


int ImagickPixel::getColorValueQuantum( int $color )

Parameters:This function accepts a single parameter $color which holds one of COLOR constants.

List of all COLOR constants are given below:

  • imagick::COLOR_BLACK (11)
  • imagick::COLOR_BLUE (12)

// Get the Color value with imagick::COLOR_BLUE
$colorValue = $imagickPixel->getColorValueQuantum(imagick::COLOR_BLUE);
echo $colorValue;



Program 2:

// Create a new imagick object
